Back to school for Boris as he gets to know his patch
Ruislip’s new MP meets pupils and helps bake some scones
BORIS Johnson went back to school to take part in Ruislip High School classes.
The newly-elected MP rocked out on the drums in music, heard all about the plague in a history class black death debate, held combusting methane bubbles in science and baked scones in food technology.
Dr Martina Lecky, headteacher at Ruislip High School, said: “All the students and staff were delighted to meet Boris. His enthusiasm throughout the visit was infectious. He showed a genuine interest in all the lessons and was brave enough to hold the combusting methane bubbles.”
Mr Johnson also met students who had represented political parties in the school’s general election and the new Latin teacher and students who will be the first class to be taught GCSE Latin.
He said: “I was hugely impressed with Ruislip High’s commitment to learning and good discipline. I enjoyed my visit immensely – the head Dr Lecky, her staff and the pupils deserve great credit for what is being achieved.”
Boris Johnson visited Ruislip High School on Monday, May 18, as part of his visits to get to know his new constituency. He will also be the guest speaker at the school’s annual presentation in November.
